And we're off! (almost)

Welcome to the start of the Tufts GROW 2013 Blog!

Malina, Greg and I (Alon) have our bags packed and are only two days away from the start of our internship with Nyaya Health.

In the weeks leading up to our flight date, the three of us have been pouring over journal articles, manuals and other materials to prepare us for the work we will be doing as members of the implementation science team. We have been thoroughly briefed by the Nyaya Health International team regarding our assignments and are both excited and anxious about what awaits us in Achham Nepal.

During our time at Bayalpata hospital we will be working on a wide range of new and ongoing projects. Our projects cover topics such as reproductive health, respiratory health, mobile health technology, febrile illness, and health post strengthening, among others.

We are going to Achham as representatives of Tufts GlobeMed and hope that our blog, pictures, and work will enable us to share our experience and knowledge with our chapter back home, as well as with friends, and family.

Throughout the length of our internship, please do send us questions, thoughts, and suggestions so that we can foster a continual dialogue. Help us share this experience with you.

Wish us luck!
